6:02 am
scene of a terror attack. hassan zubier was on holiday in turku. he tried to protect his girlfriend and help those who were injured, kicking the attacker. speaking from his hospital bed, he said despite his efforts, one of the women died in his arms. i am not a hero, i amjust a human being who cares for other human beings. that may sound silly, but that is me. i would do it again, because the world is such a dark place. if we don't help each other, who will help us? i feel so upset at the same time that i could not save her. this is the world we live in at this time. tributes in the square to those who lost their lives and were injured. the attack was witnessed by many. i was in the back with my wife. people were running from here.
6:03 am
from the window. i saw people just running. i thought, from the window. i saw people just running. ithought, what from the window. i saw people just running. i thought, what is happening? i came out. just out the front. police say the attack are deliberately targeted women. an 18—year—old moroccan was targeted. four other suspects are being held. this is the first terrorist attack in finland. of course, the whole nation is mourning now, and so was europe with us. hassan zubier, who now lives in sweden, is being offered support by the uk embassy in finland. simon jones, offered support by the uk embassy in finland. simonjones, bbc news. the spanish king and queen are expected to attend a memorial service this morning for the victims of the barcelona terror attack. the special mass will take place inside gaudi's famous sagrada familia church. king felipe and queen letizia showed their support for the city yesterday by laying flowers at las ramblas, and visiting
6:04 am
the wounded victims who are still recovering in hospital. meanwhile, police in spain continue to hunt for the driver of the van which ran over dozens of people on thursday. 22—year—old moroccan younes abu yaaquoub, is the main suspect. the spanish interior ministry says the rest of the terrorist cell has been dismantled. fraudsters aiming to scam people out of their pensions savings could soon face fines of up to £500,000. the government will introduce new measures to protect older savers, such as a ban on cold calling and tougher hmrc rules for those setting up pension schemes. almost five million has been taken from pension pots this year. here's our business correspondent, joe lynam. for thousands of pensioners, a ringing phone has become something to dread rather than look forward to. that is because fraudsters are preying on all the people on an almost industrial scale, trying to get their hands on their pension
6:05 am
savings. the government is acting by introducing new laws. banning anyone calling you without express permission to sell you when investment. you will soon only be able to transfer large sums to companies with up—to—date sums. and convicted fraudsters could face fines of half £1 million. the government is reacting to a situation we have found by way of consultation and evidence gathering. we are responding to what the police and pensioners organisation have said. but there is little the government can do to prevent criminals overseas contacting older people. so the message from aiduk is a lwa ys people. so the message from aiduk is always be vigilant, and if in doubt, hang up. joe lynam, bbc news. the iraqi prime minister has announced the start of a ground operation to drive the islamic state group out of its last major urban stronghold in the country, tal afar.
6:06 am
civilians have already been fleeing the city, which lies 50 miles west of mosul, where government forces secured victory five weeks ago. waves of airstrikes have been conducted against tal afar in recent weeks and it's been surrounded the iraqi army and militias. tens of thousands of anti—racism protesters have ta ken to the streets of boston to oppose a free speech rally featuring right—wing speakers. more than 30 arrests were made following clashes between the police and some anti—rally protesters. police said that officers had had rocks and bottles of urine thrown at them. 0ur north america correspondent, aleem maqbool, reports from boston. crowd chanting: we can't hear you! it was a day of taunting america's far—right. this was their so—called "free speech rally" that, after recent violence, many had been worried about. but this was the city's response. a massive counter—protest of bostonians condemning hate—speech and racism. crawd chanting: the people united will never be defeated! i am outraged. outraged.
6:07 am
we have to make a difference. i can't believe in 2017 that we are still marching for rights. when faced with the option to stand and say what is right and wrong, i cannot sit home and keep my views to myself, when there is hate out there. they certainly have the right to speak but we also have the right to congregate and to show that we do not support what they have to say and i think the numbers bear that out today. the two demonstrations, one outnumbering the other by many thousands, were kept apart to prevent trouble, but the far—right demonstrators, often wearing from trump hats, were unapologetic. i'm a racist. though that defiance often angered those around. just one of those so—called free—speech protesters has just come out into the crowd and has had to be escorted by police through this very angry crowd, who have been chanting anti—racism and anti—trump slogans all day. the president has been underfire for failing to unequivocally condemn the far—right activists that
6:08 am
protested in charleville, last week. even after a counter—demonstrator, heather heyer, was killed. today, donald trump tweeted this. there were moments of tensions but, on the whole, the day was peaceful. and much more about being a huge statement from people here that, whatever their president does, they will come out in their drove to condemn bigotry when they see it. aleem maqbool, bbc news, in boston. let's speak to our reporter joel gunter who was at the protest yesterday. he's on the line for us from washington. a very good morning to you. this
6:09 am
comes a very good morning to you. this co m es after a very good morning to you. this comes after violent protesting in charlottesville. comes after violent protesting in cha rlottesville. you comes after violent protesting in charlottesville. you were there. can you describe what happened in boston? this is a very different scene to charlottesville. the story of the day was a huge counter—demonstration. they are saying 40,000 came out. half of those marching through boston to boston common. a different scene to the violence we saw in cha rlottesville last weekend. the violence we saw in charlottesville last weekend. what happened with the police? again, we are hearing reports of rocks and even year—end being thrown. are hearing reports of rocks and even year-end being thrown. -- urine. that is correct. boston police said there were isolated incidents. we saw pockets of violence outside our hotel where counter demonstrators, a small hard—core group of antifascist
6:10 am
demonstrators, clashed with police. it was well after a small old rights brilliant most of the protesters had moved off. —— alt—right brilliant. how many people were there counter protesting? yeah. this so called free speech rally which was taking place in the centre of boston common, it numbered no more than 50 people, possibly as few as two dozen. it was hard to gauge because the counter demonstrators were kept well back. they were only there for a few hours. in contrast, there were about 40,000 counter demonstrators
6:11 am
according to estimations. 0k. thank you very much indeed for speaking to us you very much indeed for speaking to us for now. we will keep you updated throughout the morning. much more on that a little later. hopefully we will speak to one of the organisers from the protest who can give us more of the background to the event. full coverage of that still to come on the programme. and now for some of the other news today. yesterday we talked about child genius. sadly, the guest we had yesterday did not win. the channel for competition tested 20 youngsters aged between eight and 12 on spelling, maths, memory. rahul took the title ahead of his nine—year—old fellow co ntesta nt rona n. those questions were tough, though,
6:12 am
weren't they? very tough. and now to find out what is happening with the weather. good find out what is happening with the weather. good morning. find out what is happening with the weather. good morning. how find out what is happening with the weather. good morning. how is find out what is happening with the weather. good morning. how is it looking? a lovely start. we already have some pictures. a dry saturday for most people. temperatures dropping down to single figures during the night. but most have a dry day. cloud and satellite imagery behind me showing changes through the day. most will have a dry day except cornwall. 0ne through the day. most will have a dry day except cornwall. one or two showers into the west of england. staying dry through the day. changes in the south—west. have fun with the brightness because it will get grey in the south—west. rain and drizzle.

6:17 am
hello. what have you been watching this week? this week on the film review we go to paris for the final portrait of swiss artist alberto giacometti and his very patient subject played by armie hammer. giacometti himself played by geoffrey rush and the film directed by stanley tucci. and then the weather is on the agenda as it always is at the weekend, but this time it's extreme weather as we follow al gore and a series of flip chart presentations around the sadly necessary an inconvenient sequel, a follow—up to his 0scar—winning an inconvenient truth. and in the hitman's bodyguard, the bodyguard played by ryan reynolds meets a hit man played by samuel ljackson and it's love at first sight. well, not really. let's start with final portrait. i'm a massive stanley tucci fan as an actor. i know he's directed a few films before. i must confess i don't think i've seen any of them
6:18 am
looking at the list. how does this work—out? there was a one called big night where he played a restaurant owner with his brother played by tony shalhoub. stanley tucci doesn't pop up in this film, although tony shalhoub, who played his brother, does, again playing a brother interestingly, of alberto giacometti, playing diego giacometti. this is a story that i didn't know and a story that stanley tucci, strolling along in paris 25 years ago in one of the bouquinistes along the seine, and picked up this memoir of this american writer called james lord, who'd sat for giacometti in his final days in paris. this is what the story is based on. james lord himself, it's his memoir, and played by actor armie hammer, who is the very patient subject of giacometti, who, if you know his work, and there is an exhibition currently at the tate, i do urge you to see that, it does feature a lot of the work. he got very famous for the whittled—down sculptures, trying to get to the essence of humanity in an absurd world. stanley tucci being the impish character actor that he is doesn't really concentrate on the dark heart of the work, more the struggle of the artist and the pain that it is to sit for that artist
6:19 am
because he can't make up his mind when his work is finished, if ever. so here is armie hammer playing james lord trying to work out how long he should book his vacation for. the end of the week. yeah. 0h, isee. i could change it again. i would like to know, you know, how many days do you need? oh, i don't know, i think it would be great to work for another week. a week? a week, yes, i think a week would be good. a week is fine. i canjust move my flight next wednesday. would that... wednesday. yes, when state is fine. let's say wednesday. 0k, good. but then... what? there's no question of the portrait ever being finished so...
6:20 am
no, of course. that's the great geoffrey rush, of course. it is. sometimes i love geoffrey rush, and sometimes he can be what we call a ham. he can dominate a film, totally on balances it, and i do worry about him. here we see him, he is quite reined in there, but there is a lot of smoking and dishevelled mud and staring at your pictures, almost like the travis bickle of the art world, challenging his portraits, like you talking to me. but we also get a lot of the kind of scrape of the art, the stuff, the very great atelier where giacometti work is beautifully captured by danny cohen, who is the same cameraman that they had in the king's speech, which captured rush in a different form there. this bit is very well done. but the film takes a lot of life from the sort of cafe paris kind of stuff, distorted stuff that stanley tucci relishes in. the cafe scenes where they kind of drink wine and eggs, hard—boiled eggs, and they kind of meat prostitutes and kind of swirl around. it's that part, that romantic
6:21 am
image of the artist that you want from a film about an artist in paris. so we get that struggle but you also get the flamboyance and the indulgence and romanticism with which stanley tucci treats it. it is very much a stanley tucci film, although you would have thought stanley tucci would have said i want to play that part, he's very much there. it's a character actor's directing because he's very indulgent towards the acting and let's all the kind of funny bits stay in there. it's a serious subject but it's very elegantly and lightly done and it's very enjoyable. it is enjoyable, as it? the way you described the cafe scenes, i love all of that, visually it's fantastic, isn't it? but it can be a cliche. yes, absolutely. it sort of almost goes there and yet it deals with a new subject, very fresh, and armie hammer is very good, he is stoically funny, putting up with all of this. he's the sort of our eyes, almost the audience shrugging, god, i've got to put up with this annoying prostitute coming in and taking giacometti's attention away from me and got to put up with geoffrey rush‘s never being able to be on time, orfinish this portrait.
6:22 am
it's very much l‘artiste au travail. that's exactly what it is and i think stanley tucci has done it very beautifully. the artist at work. all right, well, and inconvenient sequel couldn't be more different. i got nervous because you used the word flip chart in your introduction there. people watching might think that is not necessarily what i go to the cinema for. i think i've been a bit old—fashioned, i think it's powerpoint presentation. yes, it probably is. that's what it is these days. in the first one it was. an inconvenient truth was a huge success. it won and oscar. it did, but it also changed our perception of al gore who was this sort of dull politician at the time but then became this sort of evangelist for climate change. what it did, it was shown in schools everywhere, it sort of proof that climate change was happening. it seemed unnecessary to do so now. but unfortunately, obviously, al gore seems to feel the need to do so. his life has changed again. he narrowly missed out on being president, al gore, and now he's become this travelling salesman for climate change. going around teaching people how to do fairly dull presentations on a powerpoint around the world, but also we get a film in which extreme weather features.
6:23 am
it is very cinematic extreme weather, isn't it, unfortunately. but there is also the fact that some people still don't believe this stuff is happening so he still needs to go and convince people. now, i need no convincing fracking is probably not good for the earth and wind turbines and solar panels are. but it's very difficult to get the world to turn around. so it's a look at this thing. unfortunately, jane, and i say this with heavy heart, it's really boring. 0h, 0k. oh, no. just watching the clips we are playing here i wasjust thinking this looks like a busman's holiday for a journalist. it looks like possibly a very interesting documentary. and i'm thinking, are people going to pay whatever they paid now to go and see it at the cinema? i mean, if they did, it's supposed to be a cure for non—believers in climate change. i think it's more a cure for insomnia. spectacular as glaciers are, they are moving at a faster pace than this film goes at. the cause itself needed a much betterfilm, and much more inspiring film than it gets in this, which actually looks like propaganda for the people who believe in climate change. it's an easy stick to beat people
6:24 am
who want to deny it, and say look how boring that film is. it is a real shame, i think, because it's a vitally important subject treated with a deathly dull kind of scenario. hit man's bodyguard. was that boring? i wouldn't call it boring, hit man's bodyguard. many things. boring it isn't. although it is very interesting, because it's supposed to be this light—hearted summer caper in which the light—hearted ryan reynolds, who we've seen recently in deadpool, as a kind of foul—mouthed superhero and samuel ljackson, famous for his expletives, snakes on a plane, comes to mind and also the works of tarantino, which comes to mind very much here. and it's almost like they couldn't getjohn travolta so they got ryan reynolds to team up as two hit men in the car. so what you get us, you definitely get a first here in hitman's bodyguard in that there is a sort of gunfight and car battle on the streets of coventry, which has probably never happened in cinema history. that could be a first. so, congratulations to the hitman's bodyguard for that. they go on the run. ryan reynolds is supposed to be escorting samuel ljackson to the hague where he is going to give witness at the trial
6:25 am
of a belarussian warlord played by gary 0ldman doing russian accent very, very russian. but they argue, they banter, they get lost, and of course, because they feel the film is rather flagging they must get a laugh by having our two stowaways hide with some nuns on the run. 0k. traditional folk music. bellissima, sorelle! go with god. ok, now, you just told me that was the best bit.
6:26 am
well, it's one of the things we can show. there is no swearing or violence. what it is is it's very flippant and bantery, and that's all fine, and then there is nonstop violence. and some of it you want to treat in a cartoonish way but in tom and jerry they get squashed, they fall apart, it's funny. but in this the violence felt very real, it hurts, and yet no one is getting hurt in it. i feel inconsequential violence becomes very dull. it is almost soul destroying while you watch so much of it in this film. i felt bad about this film. it's not the language, i didn't mind that, some of it is colourful and swearing can be fun. it isn't in this. even when they have a fight in the hardware store and a canal in amsterdam it never reaches... the fighting isn't funny and it ceases to be so. so when you say, is it boring? yes, ifound it dull in that respect. it wasn't inventive fighting like you get injohn woo martial arts movies. that was missing here. i thought it was rather plodding and it was reduced to just ryan reynolds looking askance
6:27 am
at samuel ljackson and saying, oh god, are you going to swear again in a minute? he does. 0k. what's your best out, jason? my best out, if you haven't been on holiday this year, can't afford to, or you have stayed in the uk and it has been a bit wet, how about a summer holiday with the odyssey, which is a bio pic with the french diver and all—around french personjacques cousteau, who discovered the undersea world and the fishes and brought them vividly to life. you forget now, we have whole channels dedicated to fishy stuff, but you forget no one before he brought them to life had seen seals and turtles and the dolphins. yes, he was remarkable in what he did. he won the oscar for documentary for science. so this is about him. he is married to simone, who is played by audrey tautou. and his son pierre niney. it's a very french film. look at those beanie hats. you don't get better than that. you will recognise them, perhaps, from the life aquatic, the steve zissou character played by bill murray. and, of course, this one is also about ecology and other sort of clips of the antarctic that we saw in the al gore movie.
6:28 am
it strikes me the antarctic would be a much safer place without all these film crews swarming all over it, but that's another matter. it's the odyssey and it's the most beautiful film of the summer. all right, fantastic, well, that in itself is wonderful. the dvd, goodness, a blast from the you have brought us. i know, i don't want to make anyone feel old or young because it's a film about being young. 50 years old, it is, this year, and it's out on dvd, the graduate, starring dustin hoffman and it looks like a cougar there. it is a cougar because anne bancroft is the original cougar in this film, the older woman, mrs robinson preying on the younger victim, ben braddock, played by dustin hoffman in mike nichols's epic film. it's one of the coolest films of the 60s, still looks very cool and fresh today, revived for this master, and it's still got that wonderful music, "hello darkness, my old friend," by simon and garfunkel. to quote paul simon, "it's still pretty crazy after all these years," the graduate. that's a great one to sit on the sofa over the summer and watch that. thank you very much. my highlight this week may be your russian accent but we can discuss that more later.
6:29 am
thank you very much. spasibo. lovely to see you, jason solomons, thank you very much. that is just about it for this week. enjoy your cinema going. thanks for watching. see you next time. bye— bye. hello. this is breakfast, with ben thompson and tina daheley. coming up before 7am, matt will be here with the weather. but first at, a summary of this morning's main news. a british man injured while helping victims of a terror attack in finland has insisted he is not a hero. two women died and eight other people were wounded in the city of turkuu on friday. hassan zubier, who's a paramedic originally from kent, was stabbed at least four times in the attack and is recovering in hospital. iam nota i am not a hero. iam nota hero. iamjusta humid being who cares for other humid

6:32 am
into a tight parking space in a multistorey car park, take a look at this. spare a thought for the owners of these vehicles, who found the car park itself moved. as you can see, these vehicles were left dangling over the edge of a multi—story car park in nottingham, which partially collapsed yesterday. luckily no—one was injured, and, incredibly, it seems no cars were damaged either. they might not be damaged, but how would you get them out of there?|j would you get them out of there?” would be very nervous if my car was dangling off the edge of a car park to get into it to try to get back in properly. i will say nothing about female parking skills. i am terrible at parking. a big weekend of sport. yeah. i was talking about how well end in's batsmen did against the west indies. the bowlers saw that

6:40 am
and five thousand metres in london earlier this month, he'll race over 3000 metres in the birmingham grand prix. but he's already looking forward to his next challenge, racing in marathons. it is about learning about the event, understanding the event, and going fresh minded and having no pressure and going there to see what ican do. pressure and going there to see what i can do. i think it will take me a couple of times at least to get it right. it is not like i can go 2:05, 2:04 straight. it will take some time. some sad news this morning. all blacks legend, colin meads, has died after a year long battle with cancer. he was 81. colin was named new zealand's best rugby player of the 20th century. nicknamed pinetree, he played 133 times for his country,
6:41 am
including 55 tests. yeah, he was really known as a ferocious player. as you can imagine, tributes have been flowing for him. is it true that his son was nicknamed pinecone? that is true. good fact. that was to do with his stature, a strong and tough player. a massive unit and a ferocious player. the clipper round the world yacht race starts in liverpool later this morning. 12 teams will spend a year sailing the globe in a 40,000 nautical mile race, featuring 700 participants over eight stages. our reporter, andy gill, is at albert dock for us this morning. quite a challenge. some amateurs as well. a big challenge for them. that is correct. that is part of the point. half of the cruise who take pa rt point. half of the cruise who take part in the training have had no
6:42 am
experience going sailing at all. —— crews. we are at albert dock this morning. these are the 12 yachts that will take part in the 11th round the world journey. this nice boat is nicknamed the pink panther. most of the people, half of them, have not been sailing before. this is one of them. you are doing the whole circumnavigation around the world. that is correct. you have a remarkable story about what you went through as a child. part of your brain was sticking through your skull into your spinal column. tell us skull into your spinal column. tell us about that. it is the cerebellar tonsil, part of the back of the brain. it herniated into the spine.
6:43 am
the result of that is that it caused bobbling of the spinal fluid, causing the bones to be pushed out of shape. it meant you had to spend yea rs of shape. it meant you had to spend years in plaster after an operation. after age 6—7, it was seven years in plaster from hips to shoulders 22 hours a day. and i had the muscles. after seven yea rs hours a day. and i had the muscles. after seven years in plaster, you can understand why you want to do something like this. why did you sign to go all around the world in one of these? the adventure, the history of it. it is something i have always wanted to do since i was a little grasshopper. one of the best adventures you can possibly imagine. is to prove to yourself and others that after what you been through, you are tough enough and resourceful enough to do this? in a
6:44 am
small way, i think so. but the main thing is the adventure and the fun of it. but there is a small part to prove to myself that i can pull my own weight. what, if anything, are you most worried about on this long voyage? it is less about the sailing and more about the crew interaction. a lot of big personalities can really co m e a lot of big personalities can really come to blows against each other. you will be facing some wild weather. yes. in the southern oceans between cape town and fremantle in australia, you get some big swells, massive waves, 50 metres high, and hurricanes force winds. they can really keep the boat over really quick. thank you very much indeed. from liverpool, back to you. they are back here injuly, 2018. thank you very much. what an incredible story. many people getting involved in that race. we will be back with that soon. time for the details of the weekend
6:45 am
weather, and there is a hurricane in the picture? yes, it has calmed down a little bit, otherwise we may have felt the full force of hurricane gert. it was off the east coast of the united states and earlier in the week, it progressed across the atla ntic towards week, it progressed across the atlantic towards us. various other cons of cloud watch mixed in, it is no longer a hurricane. it contains some of the elements of what was there, particularly the humid air. not seeing strong winds, we may see some rain from that system coming away. this is what is going to make the biggest difference to the weather of the next three days. pushing north across the uk. the first elements of that are being seen first elements of that are being seenin first elements of that are being seen in the form of some clouds in
6:46 am
the south—west of the country. patchy rain and drizzle being spread to devon and cornwall, as well as other parts of england and wales and eventually northern ireland. sunday is dry and reasonably sunny. clouds could vary from one hour to the next, but most should have a fine and dry day. south—west england and wales will turn rao, but in the south—east and east anglia, cloud increasing but it stays dry —— cloud. bright enough in the north of northern ireland. one or two isolated showers this morning, but the mist majority staying dry through the day. pleasant to —— enoughin through the day. pleasant to —— enough in the sunshine. heavy about sovereign around, patchy rain and drizzle through the night in northern ireland. humid air creeping in. temperatures not dropping below the midteens in the south. clear

skies in scotland, a cool night. temperatures into single figures. the best and brightest weather in scotla nd the best and brightest weather in scotland and northern england on monday. the weather front slow—moving through northern ireland towards the south—east. patchy rain and drizzle, heavy about into northern ireland and scotland. some cloud breaks across the south, temperatures higher than shown. the far north of scotland staying dry and sunny. that weather front slowly pushing through scotland and the north later rom on tuesday. a fair amount of cloud on tuesday. maybe the odd shower and some heavy burst later. the remnants of what was hurricane gert comes in the form of humid air. could see temperatures 25- 27 in humid air. could see temperatures 25— 27 in the south—east. humid air. could see temperatures 25- 27 in the south-east. when you see that hurricane coming across the ocean, how accurate can you get in
6:48 am
terms of when it is going to get and how much rain there will be? as soon as you start to take a lot of tropical air and energy into the atmosphere, the weather models start to struggle. by and large, we have a good idea. things are going to plan at the moment. hurricane gert responsible for humidity. who knew? we'll be back with the headlines in just over ten minutes time. but first it's time for click. see you at 7. get ready, your indian experience starts now. as soon as you step off the plane,
6:49 am
india hits you like a big, hot wall of noise. it is everything you've ever imagined it to be. it is life turned up to 11. the first thing you'll notice will be the traffic. it's always the traffic. is the tip just to kind of step out? oh, this looks like a gap. the sound is deafening! everyone's honking. for 70 years this country has been independent of british rule and the cities that have sprung up around the old colonial grandeur seem chaotic, but they do kinda work. kinda. and india has found a niche in the wider world. half of its 1.2 billion people are aged 35 or under.
6:50 am
maybe that's why it's known for its it know—how, its outsourcing. and the bosses of some of the biggest tech companies in the world are indian. but it hasn't had as much luck in taking over the world of consumer technology. after all, how many indian tech brands can you name? the truth is that although there is a middle class of consumers here willing to buy brands, it's not actually that big or that rich. we're here to find out how india is preparing for its future and, let me tell you, it is reaching for the stars. in 2013, india became the fourth spacefaring nation to launch a probe into orbit around mars and, unlike those who came before them, they did it on their first attempt. the indian space research organisation, isro, has been gaining a reputation for doing tons of successful space stuff on a shoestring budget. their mars mission came
6:51 am
in atjust $74 million, that's less than it cost to make the film gravity. and, in february this year, they made history again by launching a record 104 satellites on a single rocket. it could just be that india has created the perfect combination of big brains with big space experience, but a mentality for doing things on the cheap. just the sort of place you might go if you wanted to, say, land a robot on the moon for the space equivalent of small change. how confident are you that this will work? laughs welcome to the earthbound hq
6:52 am
of team indus, one of a handful of start—ups competing for the google lunar xprize, that's $20 million for the first commercial company to land a rover on the moon. december, 2017, blast off. the team indus space craft goes into two days of earth orbit and then, boom, 4.5 days to the moon. 12 days of spiralling down to the surface and then if all goes well, out comes the rover, travels half a kilometre, sends back hd video and wins the prize. what could possibly go wrong? rahul narayan is the co—founder of team indus and has been here since the very start of the project, way back in 2010. at that point you had no idea how you would acheive it? yes, i googled it and figured out what wikipedia had to say about landing on the moon. you did an internet search on how to land on the moon? absolutely.
6:53 am
laughs did it have any useful information? yes. it said there had been 85 attempts and i think every second attempt failed to the moon. six years later, there are around 100 people working very hard here, and it certainly looks like they know their space stuff. star wars in particular. even the toilets are appropriately labelled. and they've built themselves all the things that a serious space company should have, like a mission control room, a model lander that makes smoke, and a simulated lunar surface complete with a rover to go in it. just like national space agencies, testing every component and simulating every stage of the mission is a huge part of what they're doing here. we're making sure we do everything right. we're just not making it fancy. we are going to make it frugal, specific to the mission, but there's absolutely no corners that we're cutting. and, to look at it from a more philosophical way, we have one shot to win this. we don't have a flight spare,
6:54 am
so if one blows up we can go and fly the other, we have to get this right. team indus is one of five start—ups from around the world who have secured launch contracts for their rovers. while they can't say for sure, they think they'll launch before any other team, and so perhaps be the first team to land and win! that's except for the fact that to save costs they have had to sell some of their spare launch weight to a competitor rover. japan's team hakuto will be onboard too. you're both going to get to the moon at the same time. yes. how is that going to work? it's whoever touches down first and whoever has the fastest rover? it's going to be crazy! in a manner of speaking, yes. so what do you expect to happen? so it's a race, it's going to be a very interesting race, and once we touch down and both the rovers are deployed, let's see which one makes 500m first.
6:55 am
i would so put a laser gun on yours. i would so... imitates laser all of that assumes of course that the rovers make it to the moon in the first place. space exploration is a risky business and when it goes wrong, it tends to go really wrong. six years, hundreds of thousands of hours of effort and millions spent, and there's certainly a lot riding on getting things right. you mitigate the big pieces and then you start mitigating the smaller risks and at the end of the day, absolutely, one small wrong piece of code that somehow made it through could kill the entire mission. there is a word here in india that i think describes team indus's low—cost, make do approach. jugaad. i've come to the centre of mumbai, to dharavi —
6:56 am
asia's second largest slum. here, in its tiny alleyways, "jugaad" is all around, as a desperately poor population reuses as much as is physically possible. built by workers who flocked to the city over hundreds of years, some of the houses here date back to the 1840s. up ahead, there is a pile of shredded denim which they use for fuel. they burn it to fuel the kilns, just like they burn a lot of stuff forfuel here. and there is smoke everywhere here. you can really tell the air quality is very poor. you just have to take a few lungfuls and it starts to burn the back of your throat, it makes your eyes sting. the smoke is a necessary evil for the people of dharavi. like most of the developing world, pollution has been the price india is paying for a booming economy. the smog that gives mumbai its spectacular sunsets has also
6:57 am
made it the fifth most polluted mega city in the world. and when the sun disappears before it hits the horizon, you can well believe it. in november, 2016, the indian government declared the air pollution in delhi a national emergency, with harmful pollutants more than 16 times the safe limit. and it's notjust caused by all that traffic. so, where does it come from? i was surprised to find out a lot of it comes from diesel generators. see, the electricity in india isn't very reliable, but there are plenty of businesses that need guaranteed power, so they have their own individual generators that fire up whenever the electricity goes down and that means there are loads of exhaust pipes like this all over the city, which regularly belch out all kinds of unpleasant stuff. hello.
6:58 am
here in bangalore, we've come across a small project to capture the soot and turn it into art. so what we have built is a retrofit device that attaches to the exhaust pipe of the chimneys. this device can be attached to practically any exhaust pipe, irrespective of what is the age or type of engine you are running, and it captures practically whatever particle matter comes out of it. once you capture particle matter that is substantially carbon, which is like the basis of everything that exists in the world, at present we recycle it into inks, which we believe is something used by practically everyone on the planet. the headquarters of graviky labs is a mix of art studio and mad
6:59 am
laboratory — the perfect combination, if you ask me! their so—called "air ink" does have a few restrictions. it will only ever come in black, and at the moment it's not good enough quality to be used in printers. graviky is giving it to artists, who are finding their own uses for it. painting and screenprinting, for example, for use on clothes and bags. and while the ink may only have limited uses at present, nikhil insists it is still better to put the carbon to good use rather than just collect it and dump it. i'm afraid that's all we have time for in the shortcut of click, the full—length

version is for you on iplayer to watch right now and there's loads of extra photos from our trip to india on twitter @bbcclick. thanks for watching and we'll see you soon. hello. this is breakfast, with ben thompson and tina daheley. a british paramedic stabbed four times in the finland terror attack insists he's no hero. hassan zubier was attacked while he tried in vain to save a woman's life, but tells the bbc he wouldn't hesitate to do the same again. two women were killed and seven people wounded in what was finland's first terrorist attack.
